Health Care Decision-Making with Children

Being a decision-maker for your own healthcare is important. Families and healthcare providers want children to become good decision-makers. For some children this takes more support, practice, and some special tools. Learning this skill should begin in childhood and continue into adulthood.

This guide, Skills and Strategies for Health Care Decision-Making with Children, and its resources help families and healthcare providers support childrento learn the skills they need. Getting ready for a visit to the doctor, dentist, or other medical person is step one. Being at your appointment is step two. Knowing what to do next, after your appointment, is step three. We want to help with all three steps.We often think about what a child should do at a certain age. But every child is different and learns in different ways. This tool uses stages of skill development instead of ages.
